The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust
Who we are
Cancer is the commonest cause of non-accidental death in teenagers and young adults in the UK. The award-winning youth cancer charity, The Laura Crane Trust funds research specifically into cancers affecting 13-24 year olds and also funds measures in hospitals to improve the lives of young cancer patients both during and in the aftermath of their treatment. This support has included funding staff to provide engaging activities and providing recreational equipment such as games consoles, TV/DVD players, MP3 players, musical instruments, art materials etc. to help fill some of the patients’ time spent in hospital and to relieve feelings of isolation.
